s1jobs most recent data reports that more than 40% of traffic to their site is now from mobile users, signalling a huge mind shift in how people now view the job hunt and application process.

Applications from the s1jobs mobile site also increased by a staggering 86% in the first quarter of this year compared to 2013.

The new figures mirror the results of an Ofcom report from 2013, which showed that the use of mobile phones to access the internet had grown faster in Scotland that any other home nation. A trend that is expected to continue as society moves to a ‘mobile only era’.
